Uni­verse se­ries that aired from 1984-1985 was ac­tu­ally cut and pieced to­gether with re­dubbed di­a­logue from an adult-ori­ented Ja­panese anime se­ries called Beast King GoLion, a darker, more vi­o­lent se­ries.

While many char­ac­ters in the new show will be fa­mil­iar to fans of the orig­i­nal, the pro­duc­ers wanted to start the new se­ries with a clean slate for new view­ers, which means more back­story and less in­di­rect­ly­im­plied plot. “Our char­ac­ters are as un­fa­mil­iar as a new viewer would be to Voltron,” Dos San­tos says, of­fer­ing up what lit­tle in­for­ma­tion he can give away. “They're liv­ing on a ver­sion of Earth in the dis­tant fu­ture that hasn't made con­tact with alien life forms, but they're go­ing to the equiv­a­lent of space camp.” Early in the show, the plot will turn to­wards the ori­gins and pur­pose of Voltron, mark­ing the be­gin­ning of a fa­mil­iar jour­ney for past fans, and a new adventure for view­ers new to the Voltron uni­verse.
